I am completely feed up with the back and forth and what I perceive as disloyalty on the part of Wade. What more does the team have to do to get a commitment from him. He can't be paid more money by any other team. He will not be "the man" on any team more the he is with the Heat. I can't imagine him getting more endorsements than he has now. Taxes, South Beach and the teams commitment to surround him with upgraded talent. What more does he want?

Wade wants to be on a team that can win a ring. This is the bottom line. In the playoffs the Atlanta Hawks made us look so stupid. I love the Heat and will always be a big fan. But at times this organization looked like a bunch of high school players. Teams just torch us all the time. Fans don't even come out to the games. At times the Triple A looked so empty it was embarrassing. This team is lacking a lot. We need players who can "shoot" the ball and play "good defense". I have noticed that whenever, we are in the lead during a game and Wade goes to the bench for a rest,the score always down like a brick. Why can't this team maintain a lead? Everyone on that team needs to improve their game. Wade too! However, I will not hate on him because it wants to win. Winning is the object of the game.

Iam the biggest heat/wade fan.However,Riley needs to surround wade with talent,if he doesnt then I would understand if wade leaves.At this point its all about rings for d-wade.The fact that the heat can pay him more money might not be enough to keep wade in a heat uniform.Other teams will have the cap space after the 2009-2010 season to sign two max-dollar contracts.Also,how about wade giving chicago the hometown team a hometown discount.Pat riley please bow down to d-wade and his demands.

Here is my question: How many times has Michael Jordan played with the Chicago Bulls like these players are doing now? There is no loyalty like the old days. Magic, Bird, Jordan, Isaiah, Patrick, Karl Malone, Stockton. These new guys are making a mockery of the NBA.

dazz you are right on the "money" with that one. No loyalty anymore, no understanding that to get the rings, to get the respect, to become a real team you have to sacrifice sometimes...Tim Duncan is the modern day prime example of leaving some on the table, not signing for as much as he can so that San Antone can sign the guys they need and keep being a powerhouse every year.

Riley is a lunatic for saying that. Don't you see what wade responded with. Wade has the power right now. YOu can't play with him right now and say when you sign i'll give you good players. That's insane. The heat arent' the only basketball team in the nba riley. Please. LOL. Get bosh and wade will stay. Doesn't have to be bosh. Get jefferson. ANybody that will help this guy.
